What if you could help solve a cold case? Welcome to Still Missing Podcast. We’re an active, investigative podcast happening right now. Our mission is to dig up and share information on old, dormant cold cases. You can help by listening, sharing, and letting us know your theories and ideas. Someone out there knows something. We believe every case we cover can be solved.

Each season we cover a new case, exclusively. Each episode is a new journey. We cover what we found, how we found it, when we found it. Episode 10 is the last episode of Season 01.

Scroll down for more on Season 1.



Season 1

On January 19, 1988, 19 year old Susan Anne Swedell left her job from K-Mart in Oak Park Heights, Minnesota. She stopped at a gas station along Highway 5 at the corner of Manning Avenue. This gas station was located approximately one mile from her home in Lake Elmo, Minnesota. Susan pulled in to the gas station and parked her car off to the side, and another car pulled in after her. It was snowing heavily at the time. Susan was last seen by the gas station attendant getting into the other car, driven by a man. He had been at the gas pumps filling up his car. Based on it being 1988, he had to have gone into the station to pay.

The man she left with was described as having shoulder length curly hair, tall, unshaven, and a well built physique.

Susan has never been seen or heard from since, and the man is still unidentified.

Our goal is to generate fresh energy for every case we profile. We focus on the quiet cases. The forgotten ones. The never-known ones. The ones dripping with questions, desperate for answers, and decidedly intriguing.

It’s Season 1, and we have lots of questions about Susan’s disappearance. Someone out there has the answers. Is it you?
